President Obama, who is under mounting pressure to clarify his thinking on same-sex marriage after top aides publicly embraced it in recent days, will sit down for an interview with ABC News on Wednesday during which he is likely to be pressed on his “evolving” views on the issue, according to people familiar with the matter.
The interview, to be conducted by Robin Roberts, an anchor on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and was secured in the wake of a declaration by Mr. Obama’s vice president, Joseph R. Biden, on Sunday that he was “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriages.
Well, let’s see. What are Barack Obama’s options?
- I like same-sex marriage! Translation: “North Carolina is out of the map.”
- I oppose same-sex marriage! Translation: “I’m worried about African-American voters more than I am gay ones.”
- Obfuscate! Translation: “HELLLLLP MEEEEEEE…”
Yeah, I’m really torn up about how much of a problem Barack Obama is having with this right now…
